The Wealth Builder Carnival #130

Welcome to the one hundred thirtieth edition of The Wealth Builder Carnival. The purpose of this carnival is to collect articles from the blogosphere on building, preserving and keeping enough wealth for a comfortable retirement. For reference, I have tried to keep the carnival content tightly focused on wealth building and did not include submissions that were off topic. For reading convenience, the posts are listed with a brief summary or comment by the submitter and organized into seven categories: Earning, Insuring and Protecting, Investing, Living Frugally, Retiring, Saving and Taxes.

And now on to the Carnival.


Jon Rhodes presents How Rich People Think Differently From The Poor posted at Affiliate Help!, saying, "This article can help you earn more by showing you the differences n mindset between the rich and the poor."

Insuring and Protecting

Michael presents Quickly Identifying Undervalued Dividend Growth Stocks in the May 31, 2013 Updated Canadian Dividend All-Star List - Dividend Growth Investing & Retirement posted at Dividend Growth Investing & Retirement, saying, "With the updated Canadian Dividend All-Star list you can now quickly identify undervalued stocks by comparing the current dividend yield to the 3, 5 and 10 year highest yield averages. As an example of how to quickly identify undervalued dividend growth stocks I analyze the companies that recorded a dividend increase in May."

Dividends4Life presents 4 Stocks Paying Higher Cash Dividends posted at Dividend Growth Stocks, saying, "We have all heard it… Stodgy, for old people, yawn, boring! These have all been used to describe dividend growth stocks. As a dividend growth investor, I sometimes think our strategy is the most misunderstood. It seems everyone understands a traders mentality and a high-yield mentality. Periodically, it is good to remind ourselves that dividend growth stocks provides us with excellent long-term leverage and a growing income..."

John Schmoll presents How to Invest in Stocks When You Do Not Know Where to Start posted at Frugal Rules, saying, "Investing in stocks, or anything in the market, can be overwhelming for many. The key to overcoming that fear is knowing where to start and educating yourself so that you can set up an investment portfolio that’ll help you grow your wealth and reach your long-term retirement goals."

Jason Hull presents Six Areas Where I Disagree with Dave Ramsey’s Investing and Retirement Withdrawal Advice posted at Hull Financial Planning, saying, "Dave Ramsey claims, for educational purposes, that you can earn 12% average returns per year and withdraw 8% per year in retirement. This article explains how both the math and the psychology of these assertions are incorrect."

Living Frugally

Theresa Torres presents How Women Can Save Money on Small Business Travel Expenses posted at WomenAreGamechangers, saying, "Business travel expenses can be a cash-flow problem if you're not careful so here are a few tips on how you can save some cash on business travel."

Laura Anderson presents Talking Family Finances with David Bakke posted at eNannySource, saying, "Recently I had a chance to catch up with David Bakke, dad and personal finance blogger. David blogs about family finances and some of the biggest financial mistakes parents make. Here is a little of what he had to say."

Bryan presents What To Do If You Win The Lottery posted at Gajizmo, saying, "Learning what to do if you won the lottery can teach you a lot about how to handle a significant inheritance or the sudden aspects of striking it rich. We discuss the many considerations of managing wealth as well as the short vs long term factors affecting a payout now vs an annuity."


Super Saver presents Gen-Xers and Late Baby Boomers Financially Challenged to Retire posted at My Wealth Builder, saying, "Gen-Xers (born 1966 to 1976) and Late Boomers (born 1956 to 1965) may find retirement challenging as a group. Early Boomers (born 1946 to 1955) will likely be the last generation to exceed the wealth of their previous generation."
